The Gulf Islands bring to mind peace and tranquility. They offer a relaxed lifestyle, slower than the hectic pace found in larger urban centres and it is this little piece of paradise that makes them so inviting for new home buyers and property investors. The Gulf Island real estate markets offer plenty of rural settings, ocean view homes and luxury waterfront properties for the discerning home buyer interested in escaping their busy lives. Our real estate brokers are experienced in the Canadian west coast real estate markets and can offer you the local insight needed to make the right purchase. Buying a new home, to live, retire or vacation in, is a big decision that requires professional REALTORS®. We can help you through the complexities involved to assist you in finding property with the lifestyle of your choice.
The Gulf Islands are comprised of over a dozen large islands with many little ones interspersed in and amongst them. This string of islands lie in the sheltered waters between mainland British Columbia (Vancouver) and Vancouver Island, north of Seattle and the San Juan Islands. Graced with a unique Mediterranean style climate, these islands enjoy less than 30 inches of rain per year and are home to spectacular coast lines. This climate and close proximity to Vancouver, Seattle and Victoria make them popular vacation destinations or weekend retreats.
Most of the islands have developed trails for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding, not to mention beach combing, and bird watching. For those visitors interested in tennis, indoor swimming, golfing or fishing charters, the larger islands have a more complete infrastructure in place to accommodate almost everyone.
